        comfortable”

        close to the airport , comfortable room, central to both Rockhampton & Gracemere

        our stay was comfortable -the room was large enough for the three of us & bathroom was clean & well appointed. We did not eat at the restaurant so I can not rate it. We found that on our stay there were a lot of smokers staying near us & although they were smoking in the outside carpark the smoke blew straight into our room thus it always smelt of smoke & as we are non smokers this was very unpleasant.

        It is unusual not to find something amiss in motel accommodation given the movement of guests from near and far. However my partner and I were very impressed with our stay and courtesy afforded us even if was only a short stay this time.

        Good food-Friendly staff-Clean and comfy room

        It was fine for over night but wasn't impressed smelling cigarette smoke constantly in our non-smoking room and didn't sleep at all as the floor isn't insulated and could hear the upstairs neighbours moving around and talking all night. The room was nice clean and modern but I wouldn't stop there again because of those negatives.

        clean sheets/towels. location. comfortable bed

        he said he would honour it, but kept telling us he lost a lot of money with our deal of the century. we were made to feel like we were ripping him off and that made us very uncomfortable and embarrassed. we were 3 hours away from home, I had just gotten out of hospital after surgery, this was not an issue we wanted to have to deal with. we booked in good faith, and left the motel feeling uncomfortable and embarrassed. not a happy time at all. because of this bad experience we cannot recommend to anyone.

        The room was filthy, the toilet hadn't been cleaned in a long time, the railway workers partied until 2 in the morning, room service gave us 1 napkin to share, but the meals were good and heaps cheaper than the restaurant , the chef didn't turn up to cook breakfast, and again we got 1 napkin, 1 salt and 1 pepper to share, and 1 piece of toast each. Having said that, the breakfast was huge, and tasty
